Meet Sean, the Stoli Guy Seattle winner, who danced his way into the hearts of the crowd watching him perform at the GayCities-produced star search at Neighbours. He performed a modern dance routine to A Great Big World’s “Say Something.” Guest co-host Mama T. sure was impressed and proud to be from a city with such caliber of talent.
Now Sean is getting ready to travel to New York City for the national finale. Will he be the one to claim the $10,000 prize?
Can you give us a little teaser of what your original talent showcase will be at the finale on September 18?
I’ll be serving you a little bit of Black Swan and a whole lot of body!
How did your friends and family react when you were crowned Stoli Guy 2014 in your hometown?
My mom immediately reacted by crying and plastering pictures of me all over her Facebook profile. She just recently learned how to tag me… My friends were also very proud of me!
Being an LGBT ambassador for Stoli is an exciting job. Why do you think you’d be the best at it?
Part of being a good ambassador is representing my community with honesty and pride. I would do my best to connect with each person on a deeper level and to make sure that I represent the Stoli brand by being original, authentic and to bring my best self to every situation.
Why do you think being “authentic” is important in the LGBT community?
To be authentic is to be true to ones self. I think that part of being LGBT is realizing your truth and living your life with pride in yourself and respect for others.
Favorite Stoli Guy Cocktail: Definitely the Boy Next Door (Stoli Blueberi + Lemonade).
Stoli was never the best target for a boycott. I have to give them credit for going way out of their way to show support for the gay community. If I drank alcohol, I wouldn’t have a problem drinking Stoli, and I don’t have a problem with the Queerty promotion.
As far as raw ingredients, half the companies in Europe run on imported Russian gas and oil, and I don’t see anybody calling for a similar boycott. Oil and gas are far more important to the Russian economy than Stoli ingredients.
